WOW! I never realised that the US Aerospace giants got their ideas from reading old British comics.
Actually, the comic got the idea from the US Air Force Curtiss-Wright X-19A from 1960... over 10 years earlier.
"I'd better not see any of those pictures on the internet." So I would appreciate it if nobody says anything. Thanks.
What the heck are those V44's doing in the second to last pic? There's three of them I think and it looks like they're taking out some drug lords' cabanas or something. I dunno, it just bugs me.
